BVIP is always a good go to for me in the winter.

Good to meet you.
As a Minnesota ex-pat I can tell you your are missing some great friends and information if you don't belong to
one of the local brew clubs. Check 'em out. I belonged to the Minn. Homebrewers Assoc. for many years and made some wonderful friends and found some amazing mentors.
Having your wife brew with you is awesome. My husband went through the whole brew day with me once. Now he tells everybody how "easy" brewing is.....makes me laugh.
Maybe this year we can arrange a more formal AHA Forum meetup at NHC and put faces to names.
I recirculate through my pump and plate chiller during the entire boil. At the end of the boil I use a 3-way valve to only recirculate using the pump and the kettle. This is my whirlpool. When that's done I run the wort through the plate chiller and into the fermenter.
I was thinking about reestablishing my inventory in BS as well. I have the same problem remembering to remove inventory after a brew session or not remembering if I have already done it.
The software should have something that tells you whether you have removed the items from inventory already or not. That would be very helpful. I "try" to move my completed brews to a separate folder and remove the items from inventory at the same time but I am rarely successful.
Sounds like Pro Brewer advice for the home brewer? If so - I'm in!
Billy Broas has a nice homebrewing blog: BillyBrew.com. He also writes for HomebrewAcademy.com. Both he and Denny are good candidates for picking brewers' brains.
Couldn't find much info via Google search... is it still in the works?
My kids will be out in full force walking the neighborhood. I'm tempted to have a keg at the front door to hand beer out to parents.I like this idea a lot! May just do that myself.
